Thanks matt :) When I cut down the stems of the back plants (I separated them into 4 or 5 in a clump), I cut the roots off because the lady said they were rotting, so I planted the individual clumps, and today, they are already getting new bright green leaves. I still had the roots that I cut, so I thought, "what the heck" and planted two clumps of 5 of them, and they have new leaves and stems. It is pretty sweeet :) yeah when you go and get your live plants you should bring me or I could bring you so then that way I could get some more. They are very inexpensive. Oh and I can't forget about the wall-hanging betta tank, of course lol.

I'm glad you agree its a fisherman's haven! Some time back I took a couple of buds to a place about 20km from us, a place called Kromdraai. Typical of a conservancy, fishing is restricted and forbidden in some areas due to the presence of hippos. We cast our lines and noticed a few of them across the river. They submerged and the next time we saw them they were just 20m or so away. It was clear that they wanted to see what we were up to. I asked the guys to stay calm and see how it pans out, they were so freaked we left for another stream I know. But hippos are Africa's number one killer. They are responsible for more deaths than any of the other game you find out here. They will even go as far as toppling boats over to gore the occupants. I've always watched documentary shows about Yellowstone, its amazing, from the landscapes to the rivers, canyons and wildlife, and the sheer size, its a place I would like to visit. I have seen shows about just how dangeous bears and moose are. They rank up there with our big beasts. Back to fishing, tilapia, tiger fish, catfish, the many types of barbs, perch and carp are what I usually fish for, as I live inland. For us the Vaal and its tributaries and dams are where we usually go. There is a multi-million rand industry based on angling. Check out: sometime if you have a moment. Otherwise, thanks for the vote and here's a couple for you too! Cheers! Stokes

You'll note a number of cichlid, cyprinid and catfish species in the freshwater category. Some, like mozambican brooders are kept in aquaria. The eastern coast is the southern most reefs in the Indian Ocean and there are a number of angelfish, moray eel, triggerfish and other species kept in salwater aquaria. Our coasts also yield a lot of prawn, lobster and crayfish as well as abalone, oyster and other invertebrates. While the east coast is warm, the western Atlantic coast is cold and the fish vary greatly to the warmer water species. I don't do a lot of fishing lately, but I do enjoy sometime in the outdoors. In the eastern and north east there are real threats like hippos and crocodiles. There are ways to avoid them, like keeping away from the water. I've been to St. Lucia Estuary, which is great fishing, but hippos, crocs and other wildlife are abound and caution is advised. Mostly gthe animals will stay away from humans, except crocs which see fisherman as an easy meal, or hippos which are generally hostile and dangerous animals. If you decide to visit Africa for fishing, in my opinion, Kariba and Zambezi in Zimbabwe, where you catch tiger fish, is rated very highly. take care. Nice lobster. Voted. Cheers! Stokes

Good question, no I don't mind. In a lot of our in land rivers, the waters are colder than in the north east and eastern rivers. In the Vaal, Orange, and other inland rivers, there are lots of carp, big catfish, lungfish, mudfish, perch among others. In the north east and east the rivers are considerable warmer and in addition to the catfish, lungfish and carp species, you could also catch perch, tilapia, mozambican mouthbrooders, tiger fish and blue kurper. the catfish are particularly large. American bass has somhow landed up in our rivers and are considered invasive. Trout has been introduced in mountain streams in the drakensberg, maluti mountain range stream.

Fishing is great, especially for tiger fish and catfish. Coastal fishing is also lovely. We have many species of shark species, the most famous being the great white, but there are many species. We have more tropical game species on the east coast, like marlin, eastern tuna, kingfish and rock cod. ANd then on the west coast, galjoen, steenbras, kabeljou, snoek, elf, mackerel and cape salmon.

south dakota!
heya. in the mountains? cool. have fun at mt.rushmore that'll be really sweet. pheb is doing fine. for the first day she mainly stayed at the top cause the aerator wasn't in, but she is better now. Unfortunately, though, last night at 10, i discovered that my fish had ich. :( so today i had to go buy ich medicine, and I thought dory my acara was going to die because she just floated on her side in the tunnel. :/ I have to do a 25% water change before i put the medicine in, and that is every 12 hours. For two weeks. I turned up my temp to 82, and turned off the lights, because they were already stressed enough so i didn't want to put more on them. and i had to throw away my carbon filter part of my filter, which was the whole blue sponge thing, so i have to buy a new one after this whole 2 week recovery is done. So that sucks, but i hope they get better. have you seen any bison? hahaha :D have fun on vacation!
